Abstract : This study analyzes the applicability of software cost estimating models to be a tactical information processing system. In particular, the Boehm and Putnam models are used to obtain predictions which are compared to contractor estimates for the TRI-TAC- AN/TTC-42 Unit Level Circuit Switch. Factors affecting model performance are also examined. (Author)
